Visited this pub after recommendations on Trip Advisor. We ate and drank here and while the stream was good for the GAA matches, it lacked the atmosphere of an irish bar. The only thing Irish about it were the Magners & Guinness. The food was delicious but for a night of craic it wasn't the greatest.

OMG! We happened on Bernie's place while on a 3 day tour of the city. The food was absolutely amazing! FRESH.... FRESH ... FRESH I had Shepherd's Pie - the best ever! Believe it or not my husband had Spaghetti Bolognese. It was fantastic! Generous servings- even after you're full you couldn't stop eating -- just one more bite ...... More

great to see an Irish Bar in Ho Chi Minh that showed overseas sports eg State of origin rugby league. The food and drinks were a good price and a good setting

This bar is GREAT we were first greeted by a very friendly Australian who served us some cold beers and a packet of tayto crisps, just what I wanted after our flight. We ate there most days and I have to say the food is really good I could find no faults at all. The staff are just so nice... More

I come to Bernie's every now and then for some evening spirits, but on this particular occasion, Skewer's wasn't open yet (we had just come in from the airport and it was late afternoon) so we went to this nearby Irish pub. I played it safe and ordered a Shepherd's Pie and Caesar Salad. The pie was decent (as are... More

I am not much of a pub or bar food person but one day I stopped by late in the evening to give Bernie's a try. THe front area is a bar and offers smokers a place to drink which is not my scene. However in the back is a non-smoking and quieter area that is more lounge like and... More

I really want to like Bernie's. I've visited this Irish pub many times when I'm traveling on business in Saigon, and the owner is a really nice guy. The problems are really with the bar staff, as well as the lack of beer on tap. Two beers for your selection in an Irish pub? Really? I know it's Asia but... More

Have been on a one month assignment and have eaten at Bernie's several times. I was in Galway and Dublin in February so have some benchmarks to compare to. When you walk into Bernie's you leave Vietnam behind and are immersed in an authentic pub. The games are on TV and the atmosphere feels relaxed and comfortable. The staff does... More
